MAY 11,2017 PICK UPS

      Today { Monday } was a great day on the farm. Approximately 400 birds went outside, played in the grass and spent a considerable amount of time flying around the loft. About 100 now will team up and travel away for a short length of time. Several have damaged themselves flying and if you haven't had a call, it's not yours. 

      This Thursday, I will be in the Hamilton area so I can meet anyone at Tim's. I will also be at Toronto airport in both the afternoon and evening. Again, call and let me know if your planning on meeting me there. 

      The health of the birds is for the most part excellent. I do have a several of the younger ones that took a step backwards and are now in my hospital. Hope to clear them up by next week.

PICK UPS FIRST WEEK OF MAY

Hi Everyone    

     First let me say that the birds are fine. Over three hundred are out and manage to flit about around the loft. Some of the earlier ones are finding the courage to go further afoot. They go out of sight, but not for long, rushing back to make sure we haven't moved.The health, lucky me, is fine. Some of the younger ones needed help getting a drink but all are now able and willing.

     This week, pickups are cominng out of my ears. Tuesday, I am in Toronto for extra flight pickup and in Kitchener area for feed and bird pickup. On the way home I can still meet and greet along the 401. Just call my cell. On Wednesdaty I or my son, will be in the east, at the border and again along the 401. On Thursday I will be at the airport for pickup from early afternoon till late at night. Friday, I also have a late pickup at the airport in TO.

     My cell phone number is 905 269 2348. Call and let me know. 

     Thanks, Rick

MONDAY PICK UP IN CORNWALL

     By special request, there will be a pick up on Monday in Cornwall, Ontario at 11:30 AM at the Irving Truck Stop, at the Ottawa/Cornwall Exit, number 789, Road 138.

     The birds are fine, about 160 have been out and for the most part are trapping well. A couple have a bit of sawdust in their noggins and find it difficult to see the difference between the front of the loft and the back side. Another blast of wind, and they'll be fine.

HEALTH OF THE BIRDS AND PICK-UPS

Happy Easter to All

      Today, 100 birds had a great time flying out and about. About 75 spent a considerable time on the wing and the other 25 pretended to be helicopters, flapping like crazy but not going anywhere. One hundred went out, one hundred came in. Soon, the balance will join them.

      All are healthy. No issues have surfaced. I thank you for the quality birds that you have sent. They are all on the Ropa program and in the few months that I have been using it, I have become a happy camper. Down feathers float every where and all droppings are fine. 

      This week, I will be in Hamilton, Thursday afternoon. I will be at Tim Hortons, Hwy 20 and the QEW at 2 PM. I will also be at the airport in Toronto after 5 PM. I can meet anyone there, just call and let me know what time you are coming. 

Thanks, Rick

SHIPPING TO THE EMPIRE CLASSIC TRIPLE CROWN

The time to ship is fast approaching. I will be near the airport on Thursday, March 30,2017 and for those who need to ship now, I will meet with you then. Please call to make arrangements with me. For those that are shipping from far away, you may add an extra bird, just remember to add the extra perch fee and the 13% tax. This saves shipping costs and the bother of sending replacement birds if any are lost in the future. I will be at the airport Thursday evenings as needed, just check with me and the message board for times, etc. I will also meet you along the 401 corridor. Again, check in with me. Those shipping from the USA, please call Dale Zehr to make arrangements. Thanks and hope to hear from you soon, Rick.

MARCH IS HERE

      I am not computer literate. Three times I have accidentally deleted everything that I typed out. I don't know how I did that. I would like to find out which key I touched so that I could put a piece of tape on it and write don't touch. What I write down now is a quarter of what I wrote the third time which was half of what I wrote the first time. If I delete again, I will just print my name and say " Hi".

      March is here and if you're anything like me and anticipating the 1st of April, you're not sleeping at night either. The daytime is not so bad. We're renovating the loft and giving it a coat of paint. There's plenty to do and it keeps your hands and mind busy. At night, it's just pace, look out the window and then pace some more. Sometimes I wish I smoked.

      I will be going to the airport every Thursday evening starting the 1st week of April. Please let me know ahead of time and email me the Bill of Lading. Please send the birds to me, Rick Broere, not to Empire Classic Triple Crown. Those that want to meet me at the airport or along the 401 must also call and make arrangements with me. Please make all chegues out to Empire Classic Triple Crown.

      Amercan shippers please inform Dale Zehr when you plan to ship. Remember, you have only to ship to Dale and we cover the expense of importing the birds. Please make your checks out to Empire Classic Triple Crown.  

     I hope your breeding program is going as planned and I hope to see you soon.

Rick
